The Second Edition also emphasizes topics not covered in the First Edition, particularly those relating to homeland security, terrorism, threats to national infrastructures (e.g., transportation, energy and agriculture) risk assessment, disaster mitigation and remediation, and weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives). Fay also maintains a strong focus on security measures required at special sites such as electric power, nuclear, gas and chemical plants; petroleum production and refining facilities; oil and gas pipelines; water treatment and distribution systems; bulk storage facilities; entertainment venues; apartment complexes and hotels; schools; hospitals; government buildings; and financial centers.

"This book will save security professionals both phone calls and consultant fees, placing the experts' know-how within reach. Any security practitioner, regardless of experience, sector, or specialty, would benefit from this current and thorough reference. The work targets all levels of the security trade, from the novice looking at the diversity of entry-level security jobs and basic information to the seasoned executive suddenly confounded by the increasingly complex, technical terminology of today's security problems and solutions." --ASIS, Thomas W.
